Prince William’s private secretary Miguel Head has quit his job after a decade.

Miguel – who held the high-profile role since December 2012 – will be replaced by David Cameron’s and Theresa May’s former press secretary Simon Case in July.

PHD qualified Simon is the country’s top civil servant and guided the prime ministers through Brexit, and it’s believed he’ll do the same for Kate Middleton and her husband when it is rolled out next year.

He is currently working on solving the border issue in Northern Ireland and Ireland during Brexit discussions.

Miguel initially joined the Royal Household in September 2008 as press secretary to both William and Harry. 

He steered William, who is currently expecting his third child with The Duchess Of Cambridge, through his time as a trainee RAF pilot dating girlfriend Kate Middleton, through his high-profile wedding, fatherhood and stepping down from his job as a search and rescue pilot to become a full-time Royal.

A spokesperson for the Prince said: “His Royal Highness feels incredibly lucky to have benefited from Miguel’s advice and support over the last decade.”

They continued: “He has been an outstanding Press Secretary.

“He’s been central to the decisions that have guided the establishment of The Duke’s office.
